I like some and some I think are overused or just don't sound like a person.

Generally not a fan. I'd possibly use one for a pet though.

I had two ex boyfriends named after places when i was in Hs.. (dear god that was ages ago hahaha.) one was london, the other was dallas.. a friend of mine named her son camden, which is a town in Nc. there are a lot of people with name places that don't even realize that it's a town or county somewhere.

I don't like place names like Lexington or Scotland that have absolutely no meaning and were not intended to be used as names.
But Aurora? Orlando? Alexandria? Charlotte? Those were names with meaning long before it was a known as a "place" name. Both my children have "place" names, but they also have meaning and history.

It's kinda crappy having a place name. I'm dallas and I got shit my whole life for it. Same goes for Austin, Russia, china which are all people I have known. Idk sometimes I don't get ppls name choices.
